After a while, Crocodile. See you soon, Baboon. LATER, GATOR. Gator's moving - and he's so sad to say goodbye to his friends. Worst of all, he doesn't know anyone in his new neighbourhood! But with a little help and some encouraging letters - from the good pals he left behind, Gator realizes what he has to do. Just say...HELLO! And with a howdy do, Kangaroo and good afternoon, Raccoon, Gator soon feels right at home.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
